Something that has never happened before...

I love my job.

I recently got hired at TZ Medical, a medical product manufacturing company.

I was initially hired through the temp agency to work for a week and half while their receptionist went on a cruise, but on my second day of training, they offered me a permanent position.

The CEO retired and everyone moved up so there was a new international/marketing position available for Jessica (the current receptionist) and then I will take her place.

I am super excited about it.

I love the company, the new CEO is the previous CEO's son-in-law and the VP is his brother in law/previous CEO's son, a sister and a wife or two and some cousins of the family also work there, and I know family businesses can be risky, but it's great! They all work so well together and it's such a better atmosphere then my previous job, which makes total sense, it was a body shop, I was the only female for the last 4 months I was there.

I feel so much more comfortable and light working here, my direct supervisor, says I'm doing a great job. so that's always good to hear.

Jessica and I get along really well, we have similar senses of humor, and she's super smart, always using big words and stuff. She's really fun.

I've never had a job I loved before... but I have a really good feeling about this place and I'm SUPER excited about it.

The only downside is that the office is located all the way over in Tigard, which gives me a 45 min commute each way, so because of that, at the end of February (President's Day to be exact) we will be moving to Tigard/King City area to some nice apartments (newer then ours, which is a definite plus) and it's only about 15 minutes away from work. AND there's a washer and dryer in the apartment!!! YAY!  HAPPY DANCE!! There was no way with Ryan's new work shift (1:30pm-10:30pm Friday-Tuesday) I was going to be lugging loads of laundry across dark parking lots  or driving all the way out to our parents once a week, or (the most likely circumstance) wear the same pair of jeans for 2 and a half weeks.

That is what has been going on with me, and I'm loving it. OH and I kinda got bit by the crafting bug, I have been dreaming and swooning over craft websites for the past 6 months, but I finally started a project, post and pictures to come soon. :)

Love you all, have a great week!
